Flat Bread Recipe

I started making our own flat breads a few years ago when we were working to get out of debt. I couldn’t believe I had wasted so many years buying packaged flatbreads when they are so easy to make. There a a few different variations you can do but this is a go to one. I also make it without the yeast with great success.

We usually eat them with curry or egg and bean dishes. They make for a very frugal and filling meal.

Easy Flat Bread Recipe

2/3 Cups of flour – I use plain but you could use your proffered flour of choice.
2 Teaspoons of yeast
1 Cup warm water (use milk as a variation)
2 tablespoons of Olive oil (or melted butter)
1 tsp sugar
pinch of salt

Plop flour in a bowl and make a well.
Add yeast and warm water
Mix and add olice oil, sugar and salt. Now knead until soft and leave for 10-20 minutes.
It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t rise or if you don’t have time to let it rise.
Once happy roll into medium sized balls. Roll the balls out individually and pop one in a lightly oiled fry pan.
Once lightly brown on one side flip over. You should see the bread puff up a bit.
When cooked both sides pop the bread on the plate and repeat. I don’t usually re oil the pan as I find they cook better without the oil.

Happy Cooking!
